Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

Crockpot Recipes for Nights When You Ride

  • This thread has been a big help for me! I'm loving my crock pot but my usual cooking method of "throw a bunch of stuff into a pot and see what happens" can get a bit repetitive. Some winners from that type of thing:

    Pasta with chicken and artichokes
    Put your chicken in the bottom of the pot. (I use two or three chicken breast tenders per meal, really depends- see above, "throw a bunch of stuff into a pot.") Add 1c chicken broth, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1/2 to 1 cup white wine. Season with basil, rosemary, and whatever else is in your spice cabinet that you like. On top pour in half a can of artichokes. Set on high for three hours. Come home, make pasta. Slice chicken. Pour chicken and artichokes over pasta. Delicious.

    Chicken and stuffing
    Couple of chicken tenders, 1c chicken broth, 1 can cream of chicken soup, diced mushrooms. A few cups of stuffing. Stick of butter melted on top of the stuffing. Stir the stuffing, broth, and soup together. Cook on high for three hours. This is total make-Renn-happy comfort food.

      The recipes look fine and I actually prefer using the Kindle over a paper book while cooking, but I can’t figure out how to click on anything new in the Table of Contents. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t and it could very well be operator error because I never read the instruction manual.

      • I think chicken recipes are always good for night when we ride....

        Who in this world is not bored with regular meals??? And yes, ravishing chicken recipes could be better alternate. It’s always a treat for taste buds.
        Try, chicken slices with pineapple,…its easy and nutritious.

        • anyone have a really great vegetarian recipe they want to share? I read through the last few pages and now I am seriously craving a good stew. I know meat-free recipes for crockpots are less common but hopefully someone has one or two good ones they wouldn't mind sharing.

            Slow-Cooked Thai Peanut Chicken
            1 cup all-purpose flour
            8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 2 pounds)
            1 Tsp Kosher Salt
            1 Tsp Black Pepper
            3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
            1/2 cup orange juice
            1/4 cup orange marmalade
            2 tablespoons sesame oil
            2 tablespoons soy sauce
            2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
            2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
            1 can (14 ounces) light coconut milk, divided
            1 cup uncooked basmati rice
            3/4 cup water
            1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts

            Directions

            Place flour, salt & pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. Brown all pieces well in hot pan with olive oil. Transfer to a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker.

            In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, orange juice, marmalade, oil, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, hoisin sauce and 3/4 cup coconut milk; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until chicken is tender.

            In a small saucepan, bring the rice, water and remaining coconut milk to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender. Fluff with a fork. Serve with chicken and sauce; sprinkle with peanuts.

            Yield: 8 servings.

            • Cheap piece of meat
              Cheap bottle of wine (I use white)
              Carrots
              Potatoes
              Onions
              Herbs (Flavoring)

              The cheaper the cut of the meat the longer it needs to cook in the wine. The longer it has to cook the larger the pieces of carrots and potatoes (so they get less mushy).

              Great way to get rid of old wine and cheap meat.

                    3 cloves of garlic
                    1/2 tsp sea salt
                    28 oz can of crushed tomatoes

                    Combine olive oil, red pepper, sea salt and garlic in cold saucepan. Turn heat on med-hi and stir for about 45 seconds, or until it is fragrant. Do not let the garlic brown. Stir in the tomatoes and heat to a gentle simmer.


                    ==

                    Mac N Cheese

                      I make a Killer vegetarian chili in my crockpot.
                      Just sub eggplant - unpeeled, cut into largish chunks - for meat & add mushrooms to your favorite recipe.
                      Both the eggplant & mushrooms add meaty flavor.
                      I also used green pepper, onions, black beans (canned) & corn in my chili and won 3rd place at a Chili Cookoff against meat-filled chilis.

                        • I take "beef for soup" lol literally the label on the package from our grocery store, just cheap cuts of beef in chunk sizes. Add that to the crockpot frozen, along with the classic onion soup mix and a spoonful of better than buillion, a cup and half of water *or a can of low sodium tomato juice. I put it on low all day. If you like add what veggies you like for the last few hours or if you're like me and don't like mushy veggies I just steam them at the last minute and serve with the beef over the top. I like to have this with either rice, noodles or mashed potatoes.

                                • Long time lurker here, so hello to all!

                                  I make this crock pot meal several times during the winter when it's cold and I have no time to cook.

                                  1 pk. of skinless/boneless chicken breast or thighs
                                  1 pk onion soup mix
                                  1 can of low sodium green beans (drained)
                                  carrots to taste
                                  1 can cream of celery
                                  1 can fat free chicken broth
                                  1 can low fat cream of chicken
                                  1 pk. of cheese garlic biscuit mix

                                  Mix everything but the chicken and biscuit mix together in the crock pot
                                  Place chicken in crock pot, making sure it is covered by the soup mix
                                  Cook in crock pot (I put it on high until I'm heading out the door then switch it to low while I'm gone)
                                  30-45 minutes before serving, mix up biscuit mix and dollop onto the meal cooking in the crock pot

                                  The cheese garlic biscuits really add a good flavor to the meal.

                                    It's not technically a crock pot recipe, but the Hillbilly Housewife recipe for Lentil Chili works well in the crock pot and can be easily made vegetarian.
                                    http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/lentilchili.htm

                                    Just sub a good vegetarian broth for the beef boullion + water. In fact, I often make Lentil Chili the day after I've made chickpeas (for hummus or Moroccan Stew) or black beans (for rice and beans) in my crock pot. I take the leftover bean broth water and combine it with vegetable scraps, add more water and a little Italian seasoning, and put that on low overnight to produce some kickass homemade broth for the Lentil Chili.

                                    It takes about 1.5 hrs on High with hot water/broth or 6 hours on low with cold water/broth. I serve it over rice or with garlic flatbread. It also tastes better the next day and it costs almost nothing to make, so make a full pot! (Note to the non-vegetarians: it also pairs well with leftover shredded chicken or turkey.)

                                    And although it's not a full meal, these crock pot brussel sprouts are pretty amazing and pair up nicely with leftover mashed potatoes or a microwaved baked potato:

                                    • a good thread to resurrect now that the cold weather has returned!
                                      made this one last night:

                                      White Chicken Chili

                                      1/2 cup chopped onion
                                      1/2 cup diced green pepper
                                      3 ribs diced celery
                                      1/4 c or 1 small can green chilies
                                      1 clove minced garlic
                                      1 Tb vegetable oil
                                      2 to 4 Tb flour
                                      2 cups chicken broth
                                      1/2 cup milk
                                      2 cans of white beans or black eyed peas/rinsed and drained
                                      2 to 3 cups diced chicken
                                      1/4 cup of sour cream
                                      1 tsp poultry seasoning
                                      1 tsp cumin
                                      1/2 tsp salt
                                      1/2 tsp black pepper
                                      Combine all in the slow cooker except the dairy products (milk and sour cream). Cook for the day (6 to 8 hrs) on low. Add the dairy products about 30 min before serving.
                                      *I have done it with both fresh chicken and cooked leftovers.If using pre cooked chicken then it can just be added at the end with the dairy products to warm it through.
                                      * If using cooked chicken add 2 Tb of flour. If using fresh chicken then use 4 Tb of flour as it adds more liquid to the pot/needs to be thickened more.
                                      * this makes a mild chili for spiciness. Being a more delicate white sauce I don't want to overpower it...but if you want more spice add some red pepper flakes too.
